I would like to first congratulate Mike Farmer for his, as always, hard work and first boots on the ground recoveries for the new Kenya fall. Secondly, I want to thank Mike for inviting me on both trips to Kenya, first one I was not able to make due to a project at the time, but luckily I was able to join him in the hunt and recoveries during the second trip! Mike offered me a most generous deal in the recoveries, sharing in expenses, something he did not have to do since he succeeded alone in his first trip to the new fall, "Thank You, Mike!"
Now I sit at the Atlanta airport waiting for my connection to Tampa, been traveling since Sunday morning... Looking forward to getting settled at home and sharing some photos of a great adventure!
Btw, I think the projected 'profits' discussed are absurd.

> Mike so your suggesting that you will be selling the Kenya meteorites for less then $20 a gram? still $20 a gram at that is $230,000 with with 15-20 grand invested in the trip and I bet you paid about a dollar a gram or less for the meteorites thats not bad at all. You make it sound like your loosing money.
> Any whos if you make your money back and double that, thats still a killing which you will, not to mention I bet you will do trades for the meteorites as well. I know how much money can be had from new falls with meteorites and I think a few people on here can say the same. Not saying that what you do is easy, but money can be made from new fresh falls and you said your self....
